It's probably starting out in a high gear. Have you tried manual 1 then 2 then 3?

Some people have had success by removing and cleaning the transmission gear selection switch by disassembling it and cleaning old grease and relubing.

I have tried manual 1, 2 and 3 it works well.

That's fine so if you want to clean/inspect switch you may regain auto shift.
